Christian Record Services (www.christianrecord.org) has recently released its roster of summer camp locations as they prepare for another successful summer of camp experiences for children and adults who are blind or experiencing vision loss. This summer, campers may enjoy a plethora of indoor and outdoor activities at summer camps in Minnesota, Indiana, Oklahoma, Washington, Maine, California and Florida. Activities include horseback riding, archery, water skiing, crafts, cooking and even a zip line over the lake.
A previous camper commented that he was “amazed” at how the camp staff treated the people who were blind. “They treated blind people like the rest of the people here. Like human beings.”
Since beginning in 1967, over 50,000 campers have experienced camps through National Camps for Blind Children, a program of Christian Record Services. Each camp is scheduled at a well-equipped site, chosen especially for the standard of excellence and geographical location. Committed staff and counselors are trained to meet the needs of legally blind campers who are between the ages of 9 and 65. For more information on how to make this happen, please visit blindcamps.org.
Christian Record Services continues to move forward with its mission to “empower people who are blind to engage their communities and embrace the Blessed Hope.” For more information, please visit www.christianrecord.org.
